Although this machine makes good coffee it has a few design issues that i feel are an annoyance
the steam spout is too short and too low so it is difficult to find a container that will fit under it that is big enough to hold a decent amount of foam. The drip tray does not extend around the side to include the steam spout so it just drips all over your work surface. but this seems to be common across all the makes.
the cup warmer stays on even when the machine off switch is off. because the cup heater uses steam it will "boil dry" unless you switch if off at the plug. It has tripped my main fuse on several occasions. It is REALLY noisy which is not good if you are not a morning type person.
its good points are- a decent size water container easy to use and it makes great coffee.
